"You Woke Up My Neighbourhood" as written by and Peter Buck Billy Bragg....
As I wait for sleep to drag me under
In the evening gloom I sit and wonder
The words I should have said to you
The things I always meant to do
The bad dreams that all came true

[Chorus]
You woke up my neighborhood
Night after night we would row
You woke up my neighborhood
Things are pretty quiet round here now

When I think of how we were together
I know we couldn't be like that for ever
Beneath the Seven Sister stars
The night we let it go too far
I slept out in the car

[Chorus]

I remember skipping on the porch till it grew cold
I remember feeling like I was eight years old

Somersaults across the lawn
Singing dancing up till dawn
Every now and then we'd have a row
You woke up my neighborhood
Things are pretty quiet round here now

[Chorus]
